Boscombe Vintage Market

Yesterday I made a little jaunt to Boscombe Vintage Market, not only to treat myself to some vintage goodies but also to say hello to local ladies (and local business owners) - Kim, Georgie and Faye.  Boscombe Vintage Market is held in the Royal Arcade in Boscombe every first Saturday of the month (more information here) and is a charming plethora of vintage clothes, homewares, antiques and collectables along with vintage-inspired clothes and crafts.  It was a beautiful sunny day, however it was one of those days when the sun tricks you into thinking it's warm so you don't wear a coat and then spend the day complaining about how cold it is to an unsympathetic boyfriend.

cardigan: uniqlo [old] | cowboy shirt: vintage
jeans: topshop [old] |  bag: marks and spencer [old]
sunglasses: ray ban via pret avoir*
shoes: new look [old] -  (clarks do similar flat shoes e.g. hamble oak £56)

I first bumped into Georgie who owns Beauxoxo.  She sells beautiful hair accessories like the hair bows, turbans and knitted hair bands you can see in the photo below.  She also runs a much loved blog of mine, Dreams that Glitter. Joseph from Unlimited By JK also popped by whilst we were gossiping - he was taking photos of stylishly dressed people at the market (he didn't take a photo of me, I obviously did not look nice enough! :)

I couldn't resist picking up one of Georgie's gorgeous glitter-y hair bows - after a quick chat with her and her Mum we decided on a lilac bow to match my hair!  I also bumped into Faye at Georgie's stall; Faye runs Bohemian Collective who sell utterly beautiful jewellery.  (Bournemouth is lucky to have so many talented ladies!)

Next stop was to see the lovely Kim who runs Ever Ours.  You can just see Kim's tartan scarf in the below picture, she didn't want to be in the photo of her stall! Kim sells vintage-inspired fashion, jewellery and accessories and I'm always coveting their feminine, floaty dresses and blouses and quirky rings and necklaces.

Kim had a whole host of gorgeous goodies on sale - I picked up a blouse with embroidered collar, some collar pins and a necklace and Kim kindly gifted me a gorgeous triangle ring.  All of these will definitely be popping up on the blog soon.  Kim, Faye and Georgie are all coming to a blogger meet in Bournemouth in a few weeks and I'm really excited about getting to know them all better.  I think it's great to have so many inspiring, talented ladies nearby!

I had a bit more of a nosy around the market after this - particularly admiring this stall from The Cat in the Shoe. They sell handmade creatures and curiosities like fox men and two headed deers.  They are really creative and magical.

After warming up with a peppermint tea, purchasing a vintage blouse and eyeing up mismatched tea sets we then stopped off for a spot of lunch on the way home and ticked off another of our 'eateries to visit' from a growing list. But I will save that for another post as I have a baked camembert to consume.  Hope you've all had similarly lovely weekends and managed to soak up some of that sunshine.

  22. A demand for narrow luxury shoes may perhaps be low but still local stores in the community may have extra stocks than bigger specialty stores for the reason that know for a incontrovertible fact that hard-to-find items are significantly available in their save. And why is the following so? It's simple; they target customers that are fitted with special needs like those women who definitely have uncommon shoe size.

  23. La demande en particulier pour les louboutin pas cher chaussures étroites pourrait être faible, mais encore les magasins locaux au sein de votre communauté peut avoir des stocks beaucoup plus que les plus grands magasins spécialisés, car ils savent pour un fait indéniable que difficiles à trouver des articles sont très certainement disponibles dans leur détaillant. Et pourquoi est-ce genre de soi? C'est simple, ils ciblent les clients qui ont des besoins spéciaux comme les femmes qui ont pointure rare.

  24. Several types of bracelets are worn according to occasions, for example Diamond and also gold pandora bracelet are ideally worn about special yet rare situations like anniversaries, birthdays or for specific outings. Diamond and Gold bracelets give the feeling of one's sophistication. Diamond and Gold bracelets will be the ultimate choice for many who exemplify individuality.
